Coyote Sands

Coyote Sands was a resettlement camp in the Arizona desert for people with special abilities in the 1960's funded by the United States Government with the intention of continuing Project Icarus and studying people with superhuman abilities. However, mismanagement of the facility and a series of terrible events resulted in the destruction of Coyote Sands in a horrible rash of violence that resulted in the death of nearly every interned individual at the facility. Today, Coyote Sands is little more than a skeletal ruin swallowed by the Arizona desert. The abandoned research bunker and barracks bristle up at the base of lonely mountains and is a forgotten footprint of the secret history of the Evolved.
